Did anyone move from Amazon/Microsoft US offices to India? How did your TC was affected?

Looking at the Indian salaries, India is a better option to settle down instead of Canada.

TC: $240K, 4 YOE

    I haven't gone through this process, but from what I know; your base & any future stock grants will be adjusted to Indian standards. But you get to keep your existing grants. Also, you'll get relocation assistance.

    People relocate to India almost always to be with family, if not most folks prefer through US for obvious reasons.
    Just curious, why would you want to relocate to India if you can relocate to Canada?

      Bunch of reasons. People, better quality of life in terms of getting help at home and your money goes long way in India than in Canada.

      There are really good international schools if you can afford, so apart from the fact that you don't live in the West, you don't miss anything

      I'm surprised to hear home help really makes up for a plethora of Indian issues to mention the chaos, noise, pollution, traffic jams and less personal time due to longer commute times.
      But it looks like the last few things aren't a very big concern to a lot of people apparently 😊

      Why does anyone even want to move to Canada? It’s Canada! 🤦🏻‍♂️

      India over Canada is a clear economic choice, unless you have some special situation - like you don't want to encounter your in laws or something like that.

      Top 3 fastest growing global economy vs declining economy with near zero future growth drivers. I'd take 30% US pay in India vs 45% US pay in Canada. Over the next 20 years, you'll create multiple times more wealth in India.

      Fair enough, the only concern for most people is the quality of life.
